Doesn’t this sound like fun!?! Thanks to The Good Life blog for this heads up on this event.
Hudson goes to the dogs (while Catskill sticks with cats)
I have a soft spot for dogs and I love checking out the creations of local artists, so I think this idea from the Columbia County Council on the Arts is just the cat’s meow.
“Best in Show” 2008: Hudson and Columbia County Art Project
Imagine classical dogs, colorful dogs, cunning or crying or cocky dogs, cranky dogs, corny dogs, conceited, contented and comical dogs. All the newest, all the coolest will be taking up residence in Hudson, for the summer of 2008. Fiber glass dogs, approximately 25 inches, either in a sitting or standing position and mounted on a base, will be purchased by a sponsor and then painted and decorated at the whimsy of the artist. There will be promotions and special events throughout the season. Patrons who sponsor the dogs and artists who decorate them will be promoted in print, on the web, at events and in the streets!!
The dogs will be on display in Hudson and other towns in Columbia County from July 4th Weekend through the CCCA’s Hudson ArtsWalk, ending Columbus Day Weekend. Following their summer on the street the dogs will be auctioned at the “Best in Show Auction and Gala” to be held during ArtsWalk 2008, on Sunday, October 12th.
